The Planetside 2 PS4 (US) servers will be coming down at 6am (PST) for an update. The approximate downtime is 3 hours and will require a client download. Additions and changes are listed below: Vehicle Tank Handling Reverted a change to the new tank handling mechanics that affected reverse steering, and maneuvering on certain slopes. IR Smoke (ANT, Flash, Harasser, Sunderer, Lightning, MBTs) Has been renamed Smoke Screen. Sunderer's Smoke Screen has been replaced with this ability. Now emits smoke for 8 seconds at all ranks. Cooldown from 30/25/20/15 seconds to 40/35/32/30 seconds. Now immediately clears current spot markers for you and and allied vehicles within 30 meters. Now prevents lock-on attempts for 8 seconds for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters. Now masks the vehicle's minimap auto-spot signature for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters. Dev Note: Allowing IR Smoke to affect nearby vehicles increases its value in teamplay, and gives players additional incentive to choose an ability other than the current go-tos. It also allows for some niche strategies outside of teamplay, ie. disappearing behind cover and clearing your spot markers to help set up a flank or make an escape. The cooldown was increased to reduce spamability, while still remaining reasonably accessible. Misc. Additions and Adjustments Freedom Thrusters have been disabled. Koltyr should no longer count toward continent rotation, or spawn an additional ghost instance.
